Hotels with hoists
It’s no secret that the best accessible hotels have hoists! Yet, it isn’t always easy to find the right accommodation when you need it. In case you missed these ones, we’ve picked a few of our favourite reviewed or listed hotels that have hoists, and they’re hard to beat!
St Moritz Hotel, Wadebridge
If you’re after a seaside holiday, St Moritz is an ideal base for a coastal break! With views across the Camel Estuary and the Atlantic Ocean, St Moritz has been rated 4.5★ by one guest. The hotel has been luxuriously designed with access in mind, and the accessible suite has been described as ‘excellent’.
“Really well equipped rooms on ground floor of hotel for disabled guests. We had a weekend break staying in the accessible suite, which as well as easy access and masses of space, had a kitchen with low level hob and sink. In the bedroom there was a ceiling hoist for easy transfers from bed to bathroom. Indoor swimming pool accessible by shallow steps and rail, or hoist facility.” Read review >>
Crieff Hydro, Crieff
A rural escape in the heart of Perthshire, Crieff Hydro has 900-acres of grounds to explore, six restaurants, and four bars to enjoy! There are several accessible bedrooms as well as self-catering accommodation, and some of these rooms have hoists. One reviewer stayed for a week and gave the hotel 5★ for access:
“We always holiday here because of the excellent disabled access for my wheelchair. We find the staff are very kind and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Lifts all over the hotel and plenty of wheelchair accessible rooms with wet-room bathrooms to choose from.”

Greenbanks Hotel and Self-Catering Barn, Great Fransham
For a truly relaxing getaway, the Greenbanks Hotel in Norfolk has one feature in particular that is loved by reviewers – a hydrotherapy pool accessible by hoist! The accessible self-catering facilities in the hotel barn have ‘hoist clearance beneath’ the beds and the bath.
“What an amazing place. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Possibly one of the most accessible places I have stayed with all the little touches making a difference. The added bonus of a pool with a hoist was fabulous. So many hotels boast a pool but then you can’t get in. This could not be better established for disabled guests.” Read review>>
